Former Juventus boss Antonio Conte set to be appointed as the new manager of Italy
- August 14, 2014
The former Juventus manager Antonio Conte has been appointed as the new manager of the Italian national team.
A contract has not been signed yet but an agreement is in place, one that will see Conte increase his salary significantly, and an official announcement is expected tomorrow.
Conte quit Juventus earlier in the summer, in a rather unexpected turn of events, after guiding the club to three successive Serie A titles.
He was said to have departed because of disagreements with the club’s transfer policy but many believe he jumped at the chance to manage the national team after the position became vacant.
Italy had a poor World Cup in Brazil, falling at the group stage along with England with Costa Rica and Uruguay qualifying at the their expense. It led to the resignation of Cesare Prandelli.
